A crown is also called a cap that completely covers a tooth that is broken down or decayed. There are several reasons to have a crown fitted:
The following steps are involved in placing a crown:
The most common materials for teeth caps are:
Since all-ceramic or all-porcelain crowns are composed of translucent porcelain.they tend to create a more natural look for the tooth.
Zirconia crowns are exceptionally durable and tough. Teeth restored with zirconia have very aesthetic results because it does not contain any metal element.
Metal crowns endure biting and chewing forces well and last longer in terms of wear down. They are less prone to chipping or breaking as compared to ceramic crowns. They are a good choice for molars.
In PFM crowns, a metal shell is joined to a porcelain surface. Unlike metallic crowns, PFM crowns can be color-matched to the adjacent teeth. However, at times, the metal can show through as a dark line. These crowns can be a good option for back teeth where the metal is needed for strength.
According to Pott P-C and colleagues, a survival rate of 100% was observed for all-ceramic single crowns at 5 years. 1
A dental crown helps to restore a tooth back to its original size, shape, and color. Moreover, a damaged tooth can also be strengthened with a dental crown.
As per Samer MS and colleagues, all-ceramic crowns produce high aesthetic outcomes.2 Dental caps not only improve the general appearance but also add to one’s self-confidence byimproving the smile.
The procedure of crown placement is minimally invasive and does not require intensive effort.
A dental crown fortifies the tooth against any further damage and prevents sensitivity.
Dental crowns are designed to suit an individual’s mouth in terms of shape, size, color, and fit.
